Anna Beth - I love one of my first ornaments I ever got to hang on my tree! It’s a vintage Barbie ornament and she was so glamorous ! I remember being so paranoid that it had to be at the front of the tree every year!

Grace - My dad has been given me an ornament from the Mary’s Angels Hallmark series since I was born. It is so special to get to put those ornaments on my own tree every year!

Tammy Barney - My favorite Christmas ornament is a ceramic Golden Retriever puppy with a red ribbon around her neck. This one is special because my family bought this when we had a golden as a pet. She was old and has passed away, now every year we decorate the tree with this ornament , we always have such great memories of “Carson”

Meredith - My favorite ornament on my tree every year is a simple gold glitter ball. When I was 11, my Grandma Evelyn passed away after battling lung cancer. I wanted to put something on our tree to remember her the first Christmas after she left us, so my mom bought me the gold ornament and I simply wrote “Grandma Evelyn, 2002” with a Sharpie. That ornament hangs for all of us to remember her every year, and on April 25, 2015 I will marry my best friend on her birthday. 🙂

Anne Lowery - My favorite ornament is baby’s first Christmas, a picture of my daughter who was born four days before Christmas…almost 23 years ago! And she will be a Birmingham Bride in 2015.

Jennifer Echols - I love the Tennessee ornament with Knoxville heart because I went to school there and moved back home to marry my hubs! I also really love the Birmingham ornament because that’s where our home is now!

Lauren - When I was little (probably 5) we made those salt dough ornaments. For some reason I decided to make a cow. We call it the Christmas Cow, it got broken a few years ago but we still hang it on the tree in a little bag! It makes our family smile every time we see it.

Chelsea Cernosek - My favorite ornament is….wait. Oh yeah, my new puppy ate them all.

Nicole - My favorite ornament is one that my 4th grade teacher made. It’s handmade and must have taken forever to make. Now that I’m a teacher I’m always impressed when I see it that she took that much time for each of her students. I still put it on my tree every year, 22 years later.

Tabitha Reedy - My favorite ornament…that’s a hard one, because I am quite the sentimental one. I would have to say the one that is most special is a single nail hung by red ribbon. I always place it on the tree front and center towards the top, right before the star tree topper. It reminds me of the true meaning of this time of year for me, and what Jesus came to do for us. 🙂

admin - Meredith, you are the winner!
